A permanent feature on London Thames Embankment since 1974, R.S. Hispaniola invites guests aboard for a la carte dining, evening drinks and intimate parties. Formerly named the Maid of Ashton, the ship was originally launched in 1953 and had a 20-year career carrying passengers around Scotland. Today, the Hispaniola features iconic city views of the London Eye, Hungerford Bridge and Jubilee Gardens, and boasts a restaurant and bar, plus a sun deck for when the sun makes an appearance. Private events, parties and weddings also take place on the deck, with a string quartet or jazz pianist on hand to provide music to dine to.
